Second Language Socialization: Beliefs about Intercultural Communicative Competence and Foreign Language Acquisition
Language and culture are intricately linked, and the process by which learners acquire a language impacts the way that it is used. Over the past 60 years, research has encouraged policy on language education to shift from one of “grammar” centered to “communication” centered. However, the literature reports that practice and research remain largely out of sync. This poster session aims to explore why this gap between research and practice continues to exist.
